The Rance Allen Group: Lying On The Truth and Up Above My Head [1972]

Rance and his brothers Tommy and Stevie doing their thing "live" at the Wattstax Festival, Los Angeles Coliseum, August 20, 1972. Brother Tommy in particular gets stupid nice on drums during Lying On The Truth with some sick hi-hat/snare interplay. According to my liner notes, "Unbelievably, Rance had never played [Lying On The Truth] before and never would again." How about that?

See the movie!
